Surprise in the Tea Pot

tea pilgrimage

I opened my email the other day, only to find this delightful encouragement from A Simple Country Girl: the photo above and this sweet message...

Two days after I read your tea pilgrimage post, I was taking some photos early one morning while the light danced on the kitchen table. I was snapping pictures of a basil in a green creamer. Then I added the tea pot and honey jar, sans the basil. Look what I saw! A wonderful cross reflected on the teapot. I couldn't see it with any of the other stoneware, just the tea pot. Immediately I thought of you. So, here you go miss L.L., something for your new yearlong journey.

Thank you, Simple Country Girl. Indeed, I felt inspired, so my girls and I placed our first splurge order tonight... a green Earl Grey, a passionfruit mango red, and a lychee blossom green. We were oohing and aahing and we can't wait to taste the new teas and write about our experience.

Oh the image looks good with your black background. I am glad you like it!

We also have a tea obsession here. One drawer is filled with at least 30 varieties...

Okay, I am back. I just read your piece at Curator. It was entirely wonderful. Entirely.

What a great shot. Such simple pleasures, ordering your fav teas! How inspiring, I think I may just have to go pick some up myself!
